Audio solutions featuring Amazon Polly

eMagazines is connecting publishers and readers in new and exciting ways. With the recent addition of Amazon Polly, we now provide high-quality audio versions with lifelike speech for all magazine articles. In addition to reading, users can now listen to compelling stories from their favorite brands and read along with the highlighted text on their phone or tablet.

The spoken word has never been more popular with consumers and is a game-changer for magazine publishers, providing a new layer of engagement for readers that is quickly becoming the preferred method for consuming content.

Amazon’s Polly Neural Text-to-Speech voice service features:

• Male and female natural sounding voices
• Two speaking styles: newscaster or conversational
• Real-time streaming with unlimited replays
• Available in different languages

Now subscribers can listen to articles, change playback speed and follow along on screen with real-time text highlighting.

Incorporating audio versions of articles is proven to support customer acquisition and retention, increasing subscription and advertising revenue over time. We’re excited to be able to use our state-of-the-art platforms to help magazine publishers continue to grow their digital presence.
